THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
Lol, the episode really went a bit overboard protraying the animals. It's like they have personalities as characters.
The boxing gimmick was also gold. Kaidou's little brother is amusing.
Birthday and everything and forgive Kusuke giving him his favorite sweet Coffee Jelly.
Annoying Kid and and some Zoo.
Teruhashi found about Aiura being close to Saiki, Teruhashi try Gyaru style and she looks great and Saiki finally said off in end.
yeah, this is actually pretty important episode, as saiki is actually really using his mouth to say Offu.. i heard that at that time some fans predicting saiki near its ending when this manga version came out, because saiki never use his mouth to talk b4, and iirc the author said that he just simply wants to see the VA use his real voice or sth like that.
The section that teach what not to do when writing a manga sounds weird in this episode as actually it wants to apply the mistake to the saiki kusuo animation. But if u read the manga version (chapter 188) it is so easy to understand.
oh, and this episode introduce Kaidou's little sister, Sora, and Kaidou's little brother's, Toki. Here is the pun meaning of kaidou family (from saiki kusuo no psinan wikia):
Toki 時 means time, and Sora 空 means sky (or empty), but when 空 is combined with the character 間 it becomes kuukan 空間 meaning “space” (like physical space, not outer space)- so when you put their names together (with the kaidou -> kan idou) you get Jikuukan Idou (時空間移動) = travel through time-space (ie another way to say time travel)
Kuusuke you cunning bastard!1!1!
That Elland tho.. It's like the last thing I would see in a zoo. No wonder he's so pessimistic lol.
The Shonen Cognac was funny, but they talked way too fast, I kinda lost at some scenes.. But now I know why my drawing looks better when the character is facing to the left haha.
I wonder what would happen if Toki finds out that his big bro is lying xD
We got to see Blond Teruhashi eventually.. Idk but I prefer Aiura's makeover than her.. Maybe Teruhashi's right. It's the Oppai! xD
Saiki's "Oh" scene reminds me of that scene in Takagi-san
Hmmm, I was expecting a bit more from the hyped up gyaru segment honestly. Probably only better than the Birthday segment of the 5 this week for me. As I guessed Saiki really will end up with Teruhashi, assuming anyone at all that is. Personally the boobs DO make the difference for me which is why Aiura and her big, beautiful tits will always be best. I definitely prefer her with blonde hair though. Anywho another solid outing on the whole, though the production budget seemed to noticeably slip this week. The faces in the latter section of the Kaidou's brother segment(probably my favorite one too) were particularly bad. Don't run out of money yet show! Also, loved the bunny planning to slaughter humanity. Both little kid-related segments were definitely the best this week. XD
Seriously, what's the deal with Kuusuke? I know siblings "fight" can be difficult, but this is just harsh. Hiding that "I'm gonna kill you for sure" behind that "let's have some contest" word. But before that he still need some "Data" for win against Kusuo for sure. Not a brother, but like a lab rat that so dangerous it might drive human to extinction.
Talk about brother, that little brother of Kaidou really a pain to take care of. And then the Makeup contest, wow... Aiura really can't fit with her non-Gyaru style. LOL
I really liked all of the stories this episode! I think this is the second time Saiki "talked" so far, it's always a surprise! :D And of course the fact that we got another Teruhashi + Aiura episode is great.
I think why Saiki said "oh" was because Saiki found out through Teruhashi what was said to her about what type of girl he likes.. and he replied it with Oh.. Because Saiki himself probably didn't know either as he is quite emotionless/feelingless usually. It was a discovery for him, basically!
